Jonathan Tah - 86 - UEL LIVE
4.0
Why Wouldn't You Get Him?
By Dembelbae, 15-11-2018

This card is by no means going to change everything for your Bundesliga team, but it is really solid. I have tried many defenders in the BL: Hummels is great, maybe not worth the price, though, Boateng is overrated, Inform Stark is underwhelming but good, and Akanji and Diallo's CL cards are both not bad. Finally, I got fed up with the BL right backs and started using a hybrid with Sule and Kimpembe as my centerbacks. Once I got Tah, I immediately slotted him in and he felt no different from Süle defensively, which is great because I really liked Süle on shadow chem style. The only three differences between the two in game are that: Tah is faster/quicker (as you would expect), he scores almost every corner, and he can – and will – upgrade as Bayer Leverkusen progress. Overall, it is a really good card already and it can only get better.


One other thing to note is that his stamina does not feel so low in game even including the factor of him being a Center Back.

For some reason, he doesn't make as many tackles per game as other CBs, but he still performs better than many defensively regardless

The Great Wall of Tah
By danitikitaka, 29-11-2018

Well let me first comment that this card has been my trusted solid defender for the last couple of weeks at first I was trying to find a good defensive partner for him, but honestly he's so reliable for me I would have him run the defence alone haha. I've tried him next to stones, laporte, naldo, t silva, boateng, hummels, and he's been the better of the pair. My style of play is quite low tempo and like to dribble twist and turn and drag out my opponent as much as possible as everyone just sits back and defends with the AI. Unfortunately I am exposed to the counter attack all the time ( rather play beautiful beautiful football and lose a match then be like everyone else). Even though sometimes my opponent manages to cut through me this guys makes the most wonderful recoveries, he's 6'4 so his presence is there, wins almost every header and has scored a couple from corners. If you like to drag out your defenders and defend manually he's your guy. When I am up against possession based teams this guy does a good job in bullying the frontmen as my opponent knows it will be a touch match for him/her. Those who like to run down the wing and cross are met with the great wall of TAH. Although his agility says its really slow he actually does not feel that clunky and have played out with from defence a couple of times plus that 79 short passing means he will almost always give a decent pass to a team mate. Slap on the anchor chem style and gives him a little bump in pace to make those recoveries and becomes a total monster with that 99 aggression. Stamina says 64 but he manages to last the whole game ( I play pressure on bad touch and quite narrow and deep defensively). Overall hes probably my favourite bundesliga defender, solid, reliable and a game saver in those crucial moments.

I love him
By ZackkFairr, 10-01-2019

I reviewed the 83 Tah some time ago. I can simply state that this +3 card has noticeably improved everything. He now exceeds Boateng beside him!

Height and Physical - Same. He is tall and strong. Awesome.

Tackling - Tackling is fantastic. Slide tackles are less likely to foul. They are sturdier and hold the ball better. standing he will not miss its awesome. His interceptions have improved too.

Pace - Great pace for a CB. Can still be a bit sluggish of the mark but a shadow is helpful for that.

Passing - You will know I stated on his 83 that this was a weakness. No longer! he is sure footed with the all at his feet and passing as he has ever been. Surpassing Jerome. Yay!

Reactions - His reactions are great. I am assuming this helps with auto blocks and such because there is a real improvement with this.

Dribbling - Can't dribble. Takes huge touches at times. Very poor balance and agility so he can't turn well. It is better than before but try to avoid it.

Scoring - He can't shoot with his feet, he is more dangerous in the air now for sure. But he still hasn't scored.

Stamina - It's a bit low if you run around with your CB's alot. Luckily his M/M seems to help with this a bit - he lasts better than OTW Sokratis did!

Only Great because he was free
By Frozia, 07-01-2019

I played more than 150 games with him mostly weekend league and rivals. I must say he is a pretty good defender if you just look at his marking and his interceptions these are great aswell as his heading after corners. Even his pace and stamina are good enough to compete with rapid Strikers BUT his dude is giving away SO MANY penalties it is unbeliveable. This card has given away more penalties than the rest of my club combiened (same goes for red cards) and the worst thing is: most of them were given away while I was not even controlling him ! His AI decides to gove away penalties ! This also happens while im controlling him without pressing any button to tackle or anything, its horrific... If it wouldnt be for this fact, he would be a great defender especially because he was basicly free, but he solo lost me some games bc of the penalties given away by him
